1on1 with Will Battersby and Diane Shader Smith (Salt In My Soul)

Based on Mallory Smith’s mémoirs of the same name, the new documentary SALT IN MY SOUL tells Mallory’s amazing journey with cystic fibrosis. In her 25-year battle with the disease, Mallory lived a life of vibrancy and vitality. Often told in her own words, SOUL is the incredible story of one woman’s determination and the innumerable people that she impacted after her passing. In this 1on1, we speak to director Will Battersby and Mallory’s mother, Diane Shader Smith about the experience of revisiting Mallory’s journals and the balance between acceptance and fighting back.
